Yesterday, I was walking past a coworker's office. "Have you ever had a hernia?" she asked me. Believe it or not, hernia is not one of the diseases I've assigned myself. Because we were going to discuss illness, however, you can imagine how I stampeded right into her office.
"What are your symptoms?" I asked, rapt. I couldn't wait to have them too.
She said she had a pain on her side, and it was a feeling like none she'd ever had before. She showed me where it hurt, and I said, "Well, it can't be your appendix, that's on the left. Here, I'll make you some peppermint tea."
So Doctor of Holistic Healing June, here, got her some tea, and today I got to work and heard the coworker had to have an emergency appendectomy at 3 o'clock this morning.
Guess what? Your appendix is on the right. Why did she listen to my medical advice, anyway?
Other than that drama, I haven't much to tell you. Oh, except today I was going to make me a nice taco salad and I found this bowl Marvin left in the fridge.
Seriously. This is what he left in the fridge. In this bowl. This…this…KERNEL of WHATEVER IT IS, seriously needed to be (a) kept refrigerated and (b) in this enormous bowl. Uncovered. Is he Jack and the Beanstalk?
After Marvin came home and I placed said bowl gently up his inside parts, he showed me the fine art film we got today from Netflicks.
We got, like, eight episodes of The Love Boat. Naturally, we played The Love Boat drinking game. What do you mean you never played it? Didn't you go to college? You take a character (Marvin was Gopher), and every time they come on screen you drink.
Of course, Issac is a group drink. Wooo-hoo! I picked Julie, and in the particular episode we watched, Julie's parents were on the cruise (her dad was played by Mr. Roper. Of course), and they had to break it to Julie they were getting a divorce. So what I am saying to you was there was a lot of Julie on screen. Parrr-tayyy!
There was enough Gopher for Marvin to get pretty tanked on his Hi-C juice box, though, too. Yes, seriously. He drank a Hi-C juice box for our Love Boat drinking game. Melissa Gilbert was a guest star, too, by the way, along with Scott Baio's younger brother. Who knew? Oh, and John Travolta's sister. Man, Love Boat is a good show.
In the meantime, Henry was up to his usual shenanigans.
He is seriously spending 100% of his day trying to torment the other animals. Tallulah lets this kitten bite her legs, tail, snout, eyelids. I am waiting for the day her brain will snap and she bites the kitten's head clean off. I will not blame her.
Eventually, she hid on the kitten.
And Henry found some new way to amuse himself. It's always funny till someone loses a drape.
And so, my Pacific Princesses, that was my day. At least I got my full day's supply of Vitamin C.
